Dance

Symphony of Emotions

When: Sun., Sept. 11, 5 p.m. 2016

Bharata Natyam. It's not an unfamiliar dish on an Indian menu, it's the Indian dance that combines the wonders of stage, music, poetry, colors and rhythm — a true definition of performance art. It may be hard to visualize the how of this style of dance — performers themselves spend years, even lifetimes, perfecting the choreography — so it's a good thing one of the best is here to show us what it's all about. Ramya Harishankar, renowned Bharata Natyam practitioner and Artistic Director at the California-based Arpana Dance Company, is at the center of tonight's Symphony of Emotions: An Evening of Indian Classical Dance at Colorado College, joined by Indian musicians and CC Theatre and Dance professor Anusha Kedhar. Stick around after the oohs and aahs wear off for a Q&A session with the performers. The only way you'll be more immersed in this kind of culture is on a trip around the world. 5-8 p.m., Richard F. Celeste Theatre, 825 N. Cascade Ave., free, coloradocollege.edu. — Craig Lemley
